Abstract

Optimal performance of the comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiography examination depends on the interaction between the operator (sonographer and/or physician), instrument (ultrasound system), and patient. This chapter will focus on techniques for optimizing acquisition that relate to the patient and ultrasound system, including optimizing the patient and transducer positions, as well as using maneuvers and machine settings to optimize the 2D imaging, spectral, and color Doppler display.
